COVID-19 Information for Graduate Students

The Graduate School recognizes that the impacts of the coronavirus (COVID-19) present unique challenges to our graduate and professional students. We have prepared these pages to provide updates to our students. Although the primary source of information regarding the impact of COVID-19 on the UT community is the UT Coronavirus webpage, these pages provide information specific to graduate and professional students.

Testing is important to fighting the spread of COVID-19. Be sure to stay up-to-date on testing options, such as pooled saliva testing, appointments at the Student Health Center COVID Clinic, and free EverlyWell COVID-19 Home Collection Kits.
